Calligraphy!


I've been having so much fun lately making Custom Wedding Creations such as Save the Date Cards, Name cards and Tags with Hand written Calligraphy. I've never offered Calligraphy as a service before through my Etsy shop because I've never had any official training but by writing with my Calligraphy pen in my normal handwriting I've had the most fun I've had in a long time!

In fact, I'm so in love with it I've been writing everything from little notes to Jaedin's kindergarten teacher to addressing packages with my calligraphy pen :)
If you think of any project that you could use some pretty lettering on, please let me know!


In Other non related news! Be sure to stop by A Kiss on the Chic to check out her Beautiful Scrap Kits this month. With a Paris theme you can't go wrong. She included 3 tags of mine in this kit. Here's a sample! Can't wait to see the lovely layouts they will create!
Find the Eiffel Tower Postage stamp tag, Keep calm and Carry on tag and The damask tag in my etsy shop!

Okay,
First of all woman, your new banner rocks. And secondly, your faux calligraphy is amazing! I wish I could write in cursive at all, but to actually to it prettily....a dream come true. Think of how my life would be improved by your hand writing! It gives me the chills! Ha, ha.

I love calligraphy. Haven't used it in a long time. In high school I took a class on it. I even had a little side business signing christmas cards with calligraphy for people. Briefly worked for a bedding store making their generic signs in calligraphy. Fun to play with!

I really like your Keep Calm and Carry On tag. It reminds me of a luggage tag for sale at http://www.keepcalmandcarryonusa.com . The two have different uses obviously, but I thought I'd let you know there's someone out there with a similar aesthetic!
